About Alternatino

Latinos are at the forefront of a cultural conversation around immigration and American identity. Yet, we still don’t see much about their experience in popular culture. In Alternatino with Arturo Castro, Arturo Castro (Broad City, Narcos) continues Comedy Central’s unparalleled legacy of developing the biggest and most culturally relevant sketch comedy – launching the careers of stars like Dave Chappelle, Amy Schumer, Nick Kroll, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele – using modern Latino identity (misconceptions and all) as a fresh filter for cultural commentary about our daily lives and the zeitgeist...all rooted in his personal experience.
